Metatarsal Squeeze Test (Morton’s Neuroma)
The metatarsal squeeze test is used to detect a Morton’s or interdigital neuroma. To perform this test, support the patient’s foot in a relaxed position. Grasp the foot at the metatarsal heads and squeeze to compress them together. The test is positive if this produces pain, or if there is a “click” sound, known as Mulder’s click.
